Maria S.C. Lamp by Pani Jurek

The Maria S.C. lamp, designed by Pani Jurek, looks like a crystal chandelier but is actually made from chemistry test tubes placed into circular plywood bands. Not only is this a cool use of materials, but I especially love that you can fill the tubes with colored liquid and “experiment” to make the lamp entirely your own.

The lamp design was inspired by Polish scientist Maria Sklodowska-Curie, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the discovery of polonium and radium.
